DIY Overnight Oats

Being one of the simplest breakfasts to prepare, absolutely delicious and with endless options in flavour, overnight oats hold a special place in our hearts.

Everyone loves an easy to make, healthy breakfast, that can also last a while in the fridge. That's why overnight oats have recently become a popular breakfast option for kids and adults alike.

If you struggle to find the time to make yourself a sturdy breakfast every morning, overnight oats offer the simple solution of preparing one or even more - you can even prep 1 for each day of the week - the night before work. That way you have a delicious breakfast waiting for you when you wake up, which you could also just take with you to work and enjoy later on.

Another amazing thing about overnight oats is that the options in flavour are limitless and if you let your imagination run you can create wonderful combos and get exactly the taste you like!
